RDD offers jersey fabrics in natural fibres, including organic and
recycled alternatives; as well as new age artificial fibres or recycled synthetics.
A high-value natural fibre that results from the transformation of food and crop waste from a range of feed stocks including oil-seed hemp, oil-seed flax, and rice straw as well as pineapple leaves, banana tree trunks and sugar cane bark.
A cellulose acetate filament made with sustainably sourced wood bringing the richness of nature into fabrics, offering rich and deep colours with a silky smooth touch.
Strong and durable, less stretchy than similar fibres, and with antibacterial
abilities, good absorbency and are capable of UV protection.
Natural colours range from creamy white, shades of brown, grey, black or green.
Production wise, the hemp grows extremely fast, it can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land.
These fibres are derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards and contributing to a cleaner environment.
Extracted from naturally grown beech wood through an environmentally responsible pulp-to-fibre process, all TENCEL™ standard Modal fibres are biodegradable and compostable, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
Renowned for its exceptional and long-lasting softness, due to the fibre’s sleek cross section, Modal fibres also enhance the soft touch (twice as soft as cotton) of fabrics even after repeated washing and dry cycles.
New virgin TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres, used to make fabrics and garments, that come from the upcycling of a substantial proportion of cotton scraps; e.g. from garment production, in addition to wood pulp.
Plant fibres far stronger than cotton and finer/silkier than other bast fibres (flax, hemp, jute, etc.).
Nettle plants are ecologically sustainable, requiring far less water, no chemical pesticides or fertilization.
Nettle yarns are similar to linen but stronger (even more if wet), being ideal to more structured garments; they can also be mercerized and are biodegradable.
Polylactic Acid (PLA) fibres are a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based fibres, being made 100% from renewable raw materials (corn), representing a 70% less CO2 emission and up to 42% less use of energy in manufacturing the raw material, but are also recyclable and up to 100% biologically degradable (industrially compostable).
Seacell™ is a fibre with unique properties of seaweed that protect the skin against harmful environmental influences: the seaweed is rich in substances (such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and minerals) that help activate cell regeneration, which in turn can help relieve skin diseases, reduce inflammation and soothe itchiness.
Its high level of antioxidants protects the skin against harmful free radicals which damage our skin cells.
Smartcel™ Sensitive helps skin regeneration, improving wound healing and inflamation reduction thanks to zinc oxides being ideal for people with very sensitive skin.
This fibre also acts as a shield against harmful UVA and UVB radiation and possesses antibacterial plus odor-reducing properties. The fibre is produced without the use of aggressive chemicals, solely from renewable raw materials, making it both eco-friendly and fully biodegradable.
Produced from a a revolutionary high-performance biopolymer, 37% of which is made using renewable plant-based ingredients, Sorona stands out for its mechanical stretch, which means it maintains a high level of stretch and recovery wash after wash, wear after wear.
This fiber is exceptionally soft on its own, so it doesn’t need to be woven with another fibre for softness. It's dyeable and capable of holding colour without being wrapped in another coloured fiber.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are extracted from sustainability grown wood using a unique closed loop system which recovers and reuses the solvents used, minimizing the environmental impact of production.
Known for their natural comfort, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are versatile and can be combined with a wide range of textile fibers to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of fabrics. Its unique physical properties result in great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to skin.
A new generation bionic fibre composed by collagen peptide amino acid from recycled fish scale and lyocell fibre, which is 100% biodegradable.
It has the features as silk-like sheen, cashmere-like breathability and linen-like moisture control.
With deodorizing, moisture management, anti-static and anti-UV abilities, this fibre is great for protecting the skin, even the most sensitive ones, due to its unique collagen peptide amino acids will keep active even after washing, providing a persistent quality and functionality to the textile.
